Your life may be complicated
but your taxes shouldn’t be
“It’s not about how much income you make, rather, it’s about how much you keep.”
When it comes to tax filing, the needs of many Canadians are being treated like the lowest common denominator. We simply think that people deserve better than “minimum viable filing”. We build digital products to positively change the financial path for all hard-working Canadians.
That’s why we are enabled by technology and powered by humanity. We weren’t created by a software engineer. We were created by people like you, for people like you. Our products are a financial toolkit built for everyday life with low fees and few barriers to entry.
Positivity and inclusivity are at the core of what we do.
Everyone is welcome.
Everyone is looked after.
Everyone is respected.
We believe that we all get ahead when no one gets left behind.
About Founder & CEO:
Nimalan Balachandran, Founder & CEO of CloudTax, was born in Jaffna, Sri Lanka and immigrated to Canada with his family at the age of 17, due to the Tsunami that affected Sri Lanka in December of 2004. While pursuing postsecondary education in Finance and Accounting at Seneca College, Balachandran began working at the Canada Revenue Agency. His role as a Tax Payer Service Agent at CRA and subsequent employment as a Financial Advisor at Sun Life Financial lead Balachandran to start his own tax preparation business.
He sought great personal and professional satisfaction from working with all types of clients to improve the ease of the filing process and to help them maximally utilize available tax benefits.His goal was to bring his passion for technology and assist Canadians in getting the most out of their returns, by building new software that allows Canadian residents to file simple taxes on their own. Moreover, Balachandran wanted to give back to Canada, which allowed newcomers like himself to pursue his passion and provide opportunities for growth.
